Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has been fired from the reality program following his controversial remarks in GQ magazine regarding homosexuality.
A+E Networks, parent company of A&E, has released the following statement to Variety:
We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertsons comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.
I hope they don’t need the family’s permission to syndicate the show. lol. Cuz they ain’t getting it.
Longmire is. Don’t know about the Ducks. I’ll look.
Well ya know, I believe it’s time for a positive assault on this problem. And it’s not what you might think. It is a vigorous promotion of the gospel answer to men caught in this sin.
Now I want to digress here to say I think the gospel we usually hear today is the wimpiest thing in a long time. There’s no way that most of what you hear in modern churches is going to fill men with the courage to be manly men, to use their innate toughness to glorify God, filled with God, instead of using it to glorify idols, filled with idol power. That went out with the medieval knights or something, it seems to me. And it is a DAMNED shame and I mean that word DAMNED. God is mighty disappointed here!
WE NEED THE CURE AND WE CAN’T GET IT IF WE KEEP REJECTING IT.
I think the tough, even “macho” (if we dare use that term) redneck he-man set are the right population to carry that gospel. If they will rediscover its power, and it’s a whale of a lot more than going oh shucks out in the field hunting ducks. It’s the power to forcefully say no to Satan’s baloney while saying an emphatic yes to God’s truth... it’s the power that both builds in God’s spirit and that stops the work of the destroyer.
In another aside, here’s one very little publicized thing about those men saved by gospel power from sex sin. They are MORE, not less, manly than their unbelieving counterparts who happened into natural gifts that “look okay” but which are not God centered at all. Yes, the more filled with God a man is, the more manly he will be.
I hope this does not come across as just empty philosophizing here. I hope it means something to somebody!
Too disgusted and furious to express it.
Filthy, evil, queer-loving b*****ds.
So A&E chose the anus. NP surprise there. Only question is do the kids and brother stand by Phil.
I have mixed emotions. Praise be to Christ that Phil told it like it is. However the show is one of the few out there that include prayers and basic clean living and I would hate to see it cancelled. In fact I think it is disgusting that our society has devolved to this point where traditional values are now considered ‘controversial’.
On a totally unrelated note I am sick of seeing Duck Dynasty stuff all over the stores. Perhaps Willie’s doing? I dunno. I want them to be successful but it is way past overkill. There’s a glut of the merchandise everywhere you go and lots of cashing in going on. Nothing against people making money but I am sick of seeing Si’s face everywhere. :-)
That was my tack...except for the beard.
I lack the right chromosomes for that.
I wonder if another network would pick them up if A&E was so incredibly stupid as to dump them as a show?
I think it would be funny as heck at the next board meeting at they did. “We gave up millions of dollars in revenue to show our humbleness before the LGBT community!”
(Followed by the sound of glass breaking and the responsible executive taking a 12 story flight out of the building.)
HEre is the email that I sent to them just a moment ago:
am outraged at your cowardly behavior, in “suspending” Mr. Roberston for speaking the truth.
I can assure you that I have blocked your channel in my Christian home, and I will be contacting all of your show sponsors and telling them that they, too, will be boycotted, with extreme prejudice.
You have effectively alienated, and angered MILLLIONS of viewers......I suspect you will rue this day, in the very near future.
We are more in number than you can even fathom. But I think you will soon begin to understand.
Not at all...just pointing out the uncomfortable facts.
Like so many progressive sacraments, the truth may not be spoken about homosexual behavior.
Anything that challenges liberal icons must be silenced instantly lest people begin to question those icons.
Homosexuality is wrong on so many levels, anyone that sat down and thought about it would see that. That’s why any revelation of what it is really about must be squelched immediately before people start to see the truth.
Let’s keep it real ... Anus and Ejaculate.
Are they taking off Duck Dynasty off the air if so I not going watch A&E anymore
There was story that entire family threated to walk after season 3 if they didn’t pay raise I think what going happen next
Si threated to walk
I wonder if since Big Brother phil is in doghouse I wonder if SI said I am outta HERE JACK LOL!
Damn...that’s not bad, either...
I emailed them.
Yes and yes.
But there is more to this.
Beck is committed to bypassing the established MSM.
He needs two things:
He tried to buy “Current TV” to get a channel.
He will buy or force his way into the cable line up.
Having the “Ducks” would give him the leverage needed to get a preferred spot.
Mark my words.
I think they have gotten a little proud of themselves there, and that’s going to undermine some of the spiritual strength that was in it. Guys, show us what it is to live godly. Don’t give us a bunch of fetishes and idols.
They may be humbled for a season. I hope they keep the integrity not to give in to the “gay” set though.
the whole damn interview was one loaded question after another.
>> “If I were them, Id have a life size cardboard standee of Phil in every single scene.” <<
But how long do you think they’d remain on the air that way?
(my guess: 0 minutes)
